CULVER â It was all too familiar for Bremenâs boys soccer team.
After falling 2-1 in a penalty kick shootout to Argos at last yearâs Culver Boys Soccer Sectional championship, the Lions had been dreaming of a reprisal for a year.
With Saturdayâs rematch knotted in a 0-0 stalemate headed into the final minute, it looked like this yearâs sectional championship would go into extra time once more.
DeMOTTE â With under a minute remaining, Argos senior Jami Patterson took a ball from Charlie Horn, cut past two defenders at the 18 and hit a shot to her left. The ball careened off the post and into the goal to lift Argos to 2-1 over Boone Grove and clinch the Lady Dragons a repeat sectional title.
